denman is a splendid one to behold

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL EED4300TQ0 29" Electric Dryer | AppliancePartsPros.com

Here is a wiring diagram

I am assuming you checked for 240 volts and also the two 120 volt to the Neutral. The motor runs off one of the 120 volt sides.

Most common cause of this is that the thermal fuse has blown.
I do not know what to believe. The wiring diagram shows a thermal fuse in the motor circuit but I cannot find one in the parts breakdown.
If you have one it should be mounted on the blower housing along with the cycling thermostat. Usually it is white.
The other thermal fuse is on the heater assembly but it should only effect the heater.

If you have one and it is blown replace it as it is a critical safety device.
The most common cause of it blowing is a dirty or malfunctioning vent system.

Next on the list would be the door switch.

Smile Same Problem: Check the Door Switch Tab!

I just went through the whole process of checking every possible point of electrical continuity with a multi-tester. Everything passed with flying colors.

By dumb luck, as I rested my head against the front of the open dryer, knelt down trying to figure out what to check next, my finger grazed the plastic tab that extends out from the dryer switch. I noticed it felt rough on the bottom edge. Sure enough, the plastic tab, which is actually a small door striker that closes the circuit on the door switch (which electrically tested out fine, in my case), which, when actuated, allows the dryer to operate, was ever-so-slightly broken. When I closed the door slowly, there was enough contact with the remaining striker to flip the switch and, voila! We're back in drying business!

Letting the dryer door swing up and shut on its own accord blew right past the remaining striker, which left the door switch open, thus keeping the dryer from operating.

So, a fingernail's worth of duct tape was used to bolster the broken tab and all is right with the clothes-drying world again.

This scenario may also explain why some of the other threads I've read report, "sometimes it turns on, sometimes it doesn't."

Hope this helps. The actual part can be found here:

Part Details - WHIRLPOOL Dryer door switch assembly, part number: AP3132865

However, the duct-tape solution is working just fine for me!
